Pretty Good across the Board

Great location at the Marina in Manarola, perched on the point above the harbor. As expected, it specializes in seafood and did a pretty good job with it. We had just arrived from Florence and were looking for a quiet place to relax and eat. Truth is, this restaurant is not quiet, but we had a very... read more

I was by myself, and headed here for an early dinner. Plenty of tables but I was only given an option of seating in the edges with a limited view of the seafront. took my seat and was asked to move by the next waitress. Came for the stuffed mussels, it was good, but not great. Had a glass of... More

Great view of the water and wonderful seafood. This was a wonderful refuge from the giant tour groups working their way through the city. The house wine was great and the tuna even better.

We were there late so the service was limited at best. Pasta was ok. Fish had no side dishes at all. Pork dish was quite good. They were out of most desserts. Maybe earlier in the evening, it would be better.

We picked this restaurant because of its location on the shore, but the service was lacking. The wait staff were very nice but they were extremely busy. We should have known something would go wrong when our waitress came back to the table to reconfirm our remaining order long after our caprese salad was served. We waited a tad over... More

The meal was fine but when we got the bill we got a shock. They charged us for the table cloth and the basket of bread on the table. I think 10 Euros is an excessive charge for things that should be included with the service. When we asked about the charge the manager said that all restaurants in Italy... More

Set right on the harbor, the location couldn't be better. Staff were friendly and efficient. Food was good. After a long day traveling we wolfed down a seafood risotto for 2.

The restaurant is very good for a romantic dinner in the sunset with great view to the sunset. The service was very friendly and helpful. The prices are reasonable as the food is good and for a touristic city like Manarola great quality

An ex-sailor rules this restaurant and serves a wonderful griller (and so many other recipes) fish. It's a must if you spend a night in Manarola. Excellent all the year.
